Description "As COVID-19 hit, many people began to stock up on paper products from stores (especially toilet paper). This image was taken at a Smiths shortly after schools were closed and businesses were beginning to temporarily close or implement social distancing measures. Many people began to worry about the stability of the supply chain as the pandemic began to affect more people and close down large cities and factories. Although most supply chains and factories have been able to keep stores supplied throughout the pandemic, there was definitely a time of uncertainty regarding the supply chain and how it may be affected. Other products also became limited for some time such as cases of water, and any food that could be kept for an extended period of time."
